About Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, to a
successful family with strong community ties. Thought of an eccentric by the
locals, she became known for her penchant for white clothing and her reluctance
to greet guests, or later in life, even leave her room. Most of her friendships were
carried out by correspondence. Emily was a prolific private poet. Her poems
questioned the nature of immortality and death. Through nature and life she was
able to glimpse into a mystic dimension beyond worldly distractions. Emily is one
of the most loved and certainly the greatest American woman poet.
